Quran Chapter 2- 186b (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-222) - درس قرآن

Guidance unto the Right Path

Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

فَلْيَسْتَجِيبُوا۟ لِى وَلْيُؤْمِنُوا۟ بِى لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْشُدُونَ (186  b)

186b.  So let them hear My call and let them believe in Me, in order that they may be led aright.
186b.  Fal- yastajiibuu  Lii  wal-yu’-minuu  Bii  la-‘allahum  yar-shuduun.

It was stated previously that Allah Almighty is extremely nigh to the human beings. He is Aware of the most of their circumstances. He is apprised their needs, knows their expedience, wishes their welfare and betterment, hears their call, accepts their supplication, and treats them with kindness and blessings. Now two conditions have been commanded by God Almighty for acceptance of the supplication:

Fal- yastajiibuu  Lii – (So let them hear My call, they should obey My Revelations) it also includes the meanings – to agree, to believe, to suppose, to confess, to accept. First condition of the supplication is that the suppliant should obey the commands, guidelines and manners instructed by God Almighty.

Wal-yu’-minuu  Bii – (and let them believe in Me), the words ‘iimaan (belief) and Mu’-min (believer) have been derived also from this word. It has already been explained about the word ‘Belief’ that is to say, to promise, to accept with the tongue, to believe in the heart and to devise for practice likewise the belief. It is the second condition for acceptance of the supplication. Besides these basic conditions, many other conditions have also been mentioned in the Holy Qur’an and the Sayings of the Messenger of God Almighty (glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him), for instance; to pray for right and correct thing, to beg with faith and sincerity, lawful earnings, to take pure and lawful food, to be remained good etc.   

Sometimes our prayers are not accepted, then we should not become desperate and broken heart, and think that any command or decision of God Almighty is never without philosophy and expedience. However, it may be suspicion of defects and weaknesses in our supplication. It is also possible that the acceptance of supplication may be hurtful for us. So we should believe in betterment on the decision and philosophy of God Almighty.

Secondly, we should bear in mind that due to non acceptance of some supplications, it is not reasonable that praying is not useful. Because sometimes no medicine becomes useful in any disease, but the treatment is not left. So, there is no reason of giving up praying due to non acceptance. It would be certainly any reason in non acceptance. God Almighty knows our condition. He desires our betterment. So we should pray all the times also, again and again before Him, act upon His Guidelines, because it is the Path of Success.
